I'm so sorry to hear about Eddie. I was a neighbor of his for a few years when we lived on Lake st. I was just a young kid that lived right across the alley. I remember when he came back from playing for the Cleveland Indians. He gave some of us kids Tee Shirts with the Indians Logo on them. That was Great ! He was always a nice guy to us young kids. And he had a really nice Hot Rod. I got to ride in it once, driven by his dad "Bubby". It scared me to death, but it was fun. So sorry to hear about his passing. I hope you're doing OK Peggy !

Uncle Ed, what a special man you are. Always telling the best jokes, always making us laugh. You and Aunt Nan always made sure there were plenty of road trips, adventures, and family reunions. I'm glad you're finally with her again
